I hope Tsonga, or a return to fitness Soderking are the next guys. Great guys, great games.

It could just as easily be none of the above (and also not Serbia, Switzerland, Spain or the UK)

Should Tsonga fail, there's more chance of an Ethiopian winning a slam before a headcase Frenchman.

Only two of those countries have players with any chance at ending the drought (Berdych and Tsonga) at the moment. Of those two I give Berdych the better chance.

French tennis is really the equivalent of England in football.
When you know how important that sport is in this country (number of players, money invested,etc...) and if you consider how many Davis Cups they've won for the last 25 years, it's quite ridiculous that none of their male players was capable of winning even a single GS for the last 30 years!!

I'd say their GS malediction is even worse than Great Britain's malediction (which is not anymore thanks Murray) considering the ressources they put on this sport and the number of players they have.
Tennis in Great Britain is nowhere near as important and practiced as it is in France, despite what the English media and press would make you think.

France (Tsonga) or Czech Rep (Berdshit with a lucky draw) has to be it.

Great Britain is not so much a tennis country if you except the fact they have Wimbledon.

really of those countries listed only france, croatia and the cezech republic have players out now that you could see winning a slam

although technically germany and the czech republic have already ended their drought
